Performance is a central component of every student's education at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and the Ensemble Showcases are where faculty-led student groups showcase their talent and creativity.
The Electric Miles Ensemble covers arrangements of mid-to-late eighties Miles Davis repertoire, including material from We Want Miles, You’re Under Arrest, Tutu, Amandla, and Live Around The World. The ensemble uses the music and format of Miles’s later bands as a framework for exploring fresh approaches to comping and soloing. Modern rhythm section ideas, superimposing chords over static harmonies, polytonal street grooves, etc., are explored.
